Littler Drives Workplace Innovation with Online Employment Toolkit

Littler X-celerator™ offers essential employment document guidance for California emerging and small businesses

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (September 9, 2015) – Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, announced today the launch of Littler X-celerator™, a web-based tool that helps emerging companies in California comply with relevant laws as they hire and manage their workforce. As the newest addition to the firm’s suite of legal products, Littler X-celerator packages Littler’s deep knowledge of the employee work cycle into an online platform that provides employers with the tools and information they need to comply with California state and federal employment laws.

“Entrepreneurs are burdened with the stress of getting their companies up and running and are at risk of missing critical steps in hiring and managing people that can potentially present liabilities. Littler X-celerator will help employers, and start-ups in particular, to lower risk, ease liability concerns and operate more efficiently and economically,” said Eugene Ryu, shareholder in Littler’s Los Angeles and San Francisco offices. “Ultimately, California employers must comply with a myriad of intersecting legislation at the state and federal level and our easy-to-use, online system gives those employers access to legal resources at their fingertips to untangle the complex legal landscape.”

The system hosts ready-made and template documents for the three distinct employee phases: hiring and onboarding, maintaining the employee relationship, and termination of the employee. Furthermore, the sophisticated technology provides guidance on which legal documents to use and alerts users to when they may want to seek additional information from a Littler lawyer. It also houses an online resource center with guides addressing hot button topics in California such as wage and hour laws, discrimination and harassment laws, and poster and training requirements, among others. Checklists are also available for employers to keep track of the documents required by law for each employee.    

Littler X-celerator closely follows the launch of ComplianceHR, Littler’s technology solution for providing employers sophisticated options for confronting an ever-changing and increasingly complex legal environment. The firm’s commitment to innovation has been recognized through numerous awards and accolades, including the Financial Times’ 2014 “North America Innovative Lawyers” report.
